Glory to God in the Highest

Glory to God in the Highest

This morning I sat admiring a beautiful winter landscape.  The pine trees were so artfully dusted with snow it seemed each tree had been decorated by hand.  Then I realized they were decorated by hand – the hand of my Heavenly Father.  This is just one example of the constant stream of gifts He gives so freely.  From the beauty found in nature to the next breath in my lungs, God provides it all.

As I write this, we are fast approaching the New Year.  This is a perfect time to reflect on the goodness of God.  In this time of new beginnings, I want to dedicate myself to bring glory to God in every area of my life.

[our Lord] …Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel – 2 Timothy 1:9 – 1:10 (NKJV)

This passage of scripture speaks for itself, proclaiming that we serve a powerful, loving, amazing God.  From reading His word, I find I can best bring Him glory by sharing the Good News with the lost and helping my fellow Christians as we grow in Christ together.

Of course, I can do nothing without His help – but I can do all things through Christ.  Hallelujah!  My New Year’s prayer is for the Holy Spirit to guide me into activities that bring honor to my awesome savior, Jesus Christ.
